Conditions on the copyright for those who use the software:
A very important
goal of this software is to democratize the FOIA and IMF discovery process
so that anyone
can do it with very little expertise. This will hopefully reduce
the cost of getting it done if you decide to pay someone to do it.
Because of this, we insist that all companies that are decoding IMF's
for clients using this software MUST:
Tell their clients
that they are using this software.
Tell them where
on the internet they can download their own version of the software
and offer a place to download it if this website is not accessible.
That way, everyone
who is paying for decoding of their IMF will know what they are paying
for and can investigate learning to use the tool themselves. Likewise,
every private individual who uses this software is required to tell
at least three others about it, including the web address where they
can download it.
Users agree not
to resell, reverse engineer, modify, rename, or redistribute a renamed
software without the express written consent of SEDM.

We welcome your suggestions for enhancing the software. In
particular, we invite you to submit the following:
- The meaning of codes in IMF, BMF, or EPMF files that are not
currently decoded by the software and the reference document (e.g.
Internal Revenue Manual
6209 Manual) which describes the meaning of the code.
Documentation of new illegal practices
you have discovered that are not already identified by the software.
Please accompany the documentation of your new fraud technique with
an actual scanned image of an IMF file and the IRS manual showing
how the technique is used and a detailed explanation of why you
think it is a bogus transaction, including references to the
Internal Revenue Manual
6209 Manual section that explains your analysis.
